Legendary Fun Park owner passes

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Rheda Blackwell Hall, 79, of Albany, GA died Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at her residence.

A native of Monticello, GA, Mrs. Hall graduated from Monticello High School and Valdosta State College (Uni.).

She and her husband, Robert, founded the Putt-Putt Family Fun Center (now the All American Fun Park), North Slappey Blvd., Albany, GA in 1957.

Through the years they have entertained many young people and families and have given many young people their first job.

She enjoyed fishing very much with her husband and they liked to compete to see "who caught the biggest and most". 

They loved to follow the Braves, The Georgia Bulldogs and the Falcons.  They are known for their famous commercials for the Fun Park in which Robert always ends with "I can beat you, occasionally!"

The family will receive friends Thursday from 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm at Mrs. Hall's home church, Lakeside Baptist, with the service following immediately.  

Rev. Ken Chancellor will officiate.  Interment will follow at Crown Hill Cemetery.
